The WCS 6th graders went to Galveston for their end of the year trip. They went to Moody Gardens on Thursday. Then, on Friday they went to Pleasure Pier and had a Physics tour. After their tour, they had to experience all they learned and ride some roller coasters! We love that these trips are educational and fun!
Our moms do SO much for us and the kindergarteners decided that the best way to honor them was to create a monument! The kinder moms were invited to come for tea and cupcakes and see their monument be built (along with a fabulous song)! The kindergarteners thanked their moms for being their teacher, their preacher, their taxi cab driver and so much more! What a fun way to show mom that they appreciate all she does!
The sweet WCS Pre-k 4 year olds celebrated their fabulous moms today! They said the pledge, recited the books of the New Testament and sang some fun songs. Then, they presented their moms with a bag of Mother’s Day crafts! The 4 year olds served their moms drinks and brunch. It was an amazing time to serve our moms!
Today our 3rd graders made history come to life! They each were assigned a different famous person to research and write a report. Then they came to school dressed as their famous person and, in front of parents and staff, gave a history of their life. It was a wonderful way to experience history. Way to go 3rd grade Wildcats!
Last Wednesday, our 7th and 8th graders, along with parents and 2 teachers, headed to Washington DC! They had been fundraising all year and planning all they wanted to see. While they were there they met Congressman Bill Flores, got a tour of the Capitol Building, explored the National Mall, went to the Museum of the Bible, went to the Smithsonian museums, learned about the Lincoln assassination at Ford’s theater, saw the National Archives and so much more in 4 days! They were great travelers and represented Jesus, and WCS, so well! This is a trip they will remember for a lifetime. We are so proud and thankful for these students.
We have some famous faces lining the walls outside the 2nd grade classrooms! Our 2nd graders were assigned some amazing people who have impacted history and they had to write a report on their influential person. Then, they had a cut out that the decorated to look like the famous person they were assigned. The 2nd grade teachers posted the famous people in the hallway for all the other grades to admire and study as they walked by. What a great way to learn history!
This week our 1st-8th graders took the ITBS test. They worked so hard and we wanted to celebrate them and have some fun. The middle school students planned a GREAT Friday afternoon den competition! First, we all ate lunch together as a WCS family with our kindergarten-8th graders. Then, the students divided up by grade and dens to competed in dodgeball and 4 different rotations of puzzles, ping pong basketball, cup stack and a relay race! They earned points for their dens at every competition and in the end the Orange den won! It was such an exciting afternoon after a long week of testing. Way to go Wildcats!!
Yesterday, our 2nd graders went on a field trip to the Dr. Pepper Museum. They learned about the history of this famous drink that was invented here in Waco. Then, they invented their own sodas and created advertisements and slogans to sell their drinks. It was a wonderful day of learning, creating, exploring and being together as a class. Thank you Dr. Pepper Museum!
